Wanted: Farm helpers (2)
Location: Wanham, Alberta (live on-farm)
My 2 helpers have left now and I am looking for a replacement. I’d love to find two buddies again as that worked out great and they were awesome. The young man that was supposed to come this week unfortunately just canceled due to a family emergency. I live on a small hobby horse ranch with 40 acres 1 hour north of Grande Prairie. Besides me there are 3 foster kids at this time and my 5 dogs, 4 cats and 5 horses. The kids are at a sitter Monday through Friday so there’s only interaction in the evenings and on the weekends.
The chores here are varied. At this time of year, the main jobs are looking after the animals and repairing / building the outside buildings and pasture projects such as fencing and setting up corrals. So if you enjoy making things with your hands, you will enjoy it here. Experience in using a chainsaw and carpenter skills are essential skills to have.
Preparing and maintaining the garden is also something that needs to be done. Landscaping skills will be helpful as the property is getting a face-lift this year which is in full swing.
I have 5 Horses, that also require some attention. Feeding and maintaining their pastures. Doctoring if needed. Knowledge of horses would be a definite asset. If you know how to ride that's great As they could need some exercise
I have found that it has been most beneficial for everyone to enjoy a minimum stay of 3 months. Longer is always better and preferred.
